The Retinal Disorder Drugs Market: 2016 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts

Release Date: July 2016

Number of Pages: 213

Number of Tables and Figures: 44

Synopsis: Retinal disorders such as AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration) and diabetic eye disease can significantly impair vision by damaging the tissue layer at the back of the eye responsible for light detection. In severe cases, certain retinal disorders can even result in permanent blindness, making timely treatment critical.

Retinal disorders are typically treated with drugs, laser treatment or surgery. Largely dominated by anti-VEGF therapies, drugs remain the preferred approach to treat most cases of retinal disorders. Retinal disorder drug sales are expected to account for nearly $13 Billion by the end of 2016. The market is ripe for future growth with a number of product candidates in development, including long-acting anti-VEGF treatments, anti-PDGF agents, combination therapies, complement factor inhibitors and cell therapies.
